Best time to go to Kotu
Thanks to its base near the equator, The Gambia’s blessed with toasty temperatures throughout the year. Winter – from November to April – is the most popular time to swing by. While the UK and the rest of Europe get chilly, The Gambia basks in 30°C heat. July to October’s considered rainy season, but the downpours are usually short during the day, with the most rain at night. It’s still sizzling, too, in the low-30s.
